Cilantro Chicken Tenders




    Ingredients :

  • 2 bunches cilantro
  • 7 cloves garlic
  • peeled
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper
  • or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds
  • 2 ½ pounds chicken tenders
  • cut into small pieces
  • ½ tablespoon cumin powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • chopped
  • ½ tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 bay leaf
  • or more to taste
  • ½ tablespoon cumin seeds
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups uncooked white rice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • Methods :

  • Combine cilantro, garlic, jalapeno pepper, and lemon juice in a blender and process well. Set aside.
  • Warm 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add cumin seeds and fry until brown, about 1 minute. Add chicken and fry until no longer pink in the middle and juices run clear, 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Pour in cilantro mixture and increase heat to medium-high. Add cumin powder, salt, and cayenne pepper. Cook until juices evaporate and sauce thickens slightly, 3 to 5 minutes, making sure to stir frequently to prevent burning. Add bell peppers and cook for 10 minutes more.
  • Meanwhile, heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add cinnamon stick, bay leaf, and cumin seeds. Add water, rice, and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer until water is absorbed and rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Serve chicken over cooked rice.
